Newman Street, 20 February 1815. 3 pp. 9 x 7 inches, in fine condition, traces of guard where formerly mounted. John Bacon (1777-1859), sculptor. His father died in 1799, and John Bacon, junior, succeeded to his business. He finished such works as he found in progress, including the well-known statue of Lord Cornwallis, and managed to secure ample patronage for himself. There are six of his monuments in St. Paul's Cathedral, and some in Westminster Abbey. “I should also take the liberty to ask for the inscription to Sir John Moore; but as that Monument will be placed upon the floor of the church, we are not impeded in the erection of that by the want of the inscription, as we are in the other instances referred to.”
